Hi All,

I am currently a rising sophomore at Bentley University and am very interested in I-banking. I was recently accepted as a transfer student to NYU Stern for sophomore year. Which school would be better to pursue a career in i-banking, getting internships better reputation and an overall better college experience. This will be a very difficult decision for me to make in the next coming weeks and any positive input will be greatly considered and appreciated.

Stern. Its nearly impossible to get a wall street job from bentley (not saying its a bad uni),
Really can't see how it's a "difficult decision". Good job getting in as a transfer tho, heard its crazy competitive..

You would have a very difficult time securing a full-time analyst job coming from Bentley. As if it wasn't obvious from the above posters, Stern is a much better choice for your career (as long as you don't major in religion and women's studies).

NYU is obviously in the city as opposed to Bentley which is in the Boston suburbs. That will probably be the biggest change for you. Even if you are a suburbs kinda guy, I believe the career prospects from Stern far outweigh any negative social aspects you may experience by transferring.
